"I was really looking forward to the 600 race, so it was a really big bummer when we couldn't run. All we wanted was a few minutes of practice, and the AMA didn't want to give it to us. I would've raced that day, but I didn't know what the track was like. Then the other riders were sitting out, and I wasn't going to go against them. I think we tried to make a point to the AMA, and I think maybe they understand now that we don't want to race under unsafe conditions. They tried to pull the same stuff at Road America and throw the green flag even though it was sprinkling. It's just a safety issue."
